Gemalto: Gemalto boosts connectivity for the Internet of Things with the industry-first M2M Cat 1 LTE module

Amsterdam, Sept. 1, 2015
- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
is launching the industry's first LTE Category 1 (Cat 1) wireless module to
revolutionize highly efficient 4G LTE connectivity. Specifically designed for
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and industrial Internet of Things (IoT)
applications, the newCinterion® M2M module
meets the market need of power-optimized performance and single-mode LTE at
speeds of up to 10Mbit/s download and 5Mbit/s uplink. This makes it an ideal
solution for IoT applications such as metering, tracking and tracing, fleet
management and mHealth that require the longevity and reliability of LTE in
the decades ahead as 2G and 3G networks phase out.

The ruggedCinterion
ELS31
is the first in a series of leading edge M2M-optimized LTE products from
Gemalto. The solution delivers a long lifespan, significant bandwidth and
power efficiencies and a feature set specific to the needs of industrial IoT
solutions such as extended operating temperatures from -40°C to 85°C. Sharing
the same footprint as existing Cinterion industrial portfolio products, the
new module enables easy migration to LTE from 2G and 3G devices. All
Cinterion modules come with Full Type Approval (FTA) and local network
operator certifications to ensure easy integration and a fast time to market
for innovative solutions. The Cat 1 LTE module joins the Cinterion family of
integrated products leveraging Gemalto's core competencies on Machine
Identification Modules (MIMs)TM, managed M2M platforms and security
technology required for today's IoT world.

"Mobile networks worldwide are rapidly evolving to LTE, but the vast majority
of industrial M2M and IoT solutions don't require high-speed 4G bandwidth for
optimal performance,"
said Josh Builta, Associate Director of M2M at IHS.
"LTE Cat 1 modules however provide performance and features that are optimal
for most industrial applications, and deliver a cost-effective way to
alleviate customers' long-term future proofing concerns."

"
With M2M connections expected to reach 1 billion by 20201, the new Gemalto
Cinterion Cat 1 module paves the way for massive expansion of the IoT
marketplace enabling smart, efficient and cost effective use of evolving 4G
networks,"
said Axel Hansmann Vice President Portfolio&Strategy M2M at Gemalto. "The new
module is the industry's first step toward true machine type
communications offering advantages in size, power and longevity as well as
easy integration with Gemalto's market leading MIMs and security technologies
for significant value added benefits."
